Just a small note:
Yesterday night I tried the live CD (F10-i686-Live.iso) on my laptop. It had FireFox 1.9. The most attractive stuff was the desktop background and Malayalam i/p methods. I liked swanalekha but I should say that almost all of them were insufficient for me to do anything meaningful. May be they had support, but was not too apparent. The most noticeable stuff was that it was slooooooooow. Could not get my wireless device working (Broadcom Corporation Dell Wireless 1390 WLAN Mini-PCI).
